I don't really mind the Preds despite them being a division rival, other than they made up that lame "throw a catfish on the ice" thing and then their fans try to claim it wasn't ripped off from the Red Wings' octopus and has nothing to do with it.
I also don't mind the Blues all that much (was cheering for them to dumb Jumbo Splash and the Sharks), other than the fact that seemingly every time we play them their fans on here start a thread whining about the officiating.
You couldnt pay me to root for the Preds. I hope that franchise never wins anything.
If there is one playoff team I can't quite bring myself to hate, it's the Preds. I respect the work Poile has done, given their financial limitations, and I respect Trotz as a coach. They play responsible defense and still score goals. Good makeup. No real villains. Not sure what's to hate, other than the fact that they just beat us
